Bangalore: Royalty signifies centuries of reigning, prosperity and wealth. There is perhaps no better way of portraying royalty than the crown jewels. These priceless wonders have adorned many rulers and now hold a special place in various museums. Here are some of the exquisite and expensive crown jewels of the world, as given by Luxpresso.Com -

1. United Kingdom

The U.K. crown jewels top the list of the most famous set of royal jewels in the world. The Crown Jewels of U.K. are one of the most stunning sets in the world. It also is a whopping over $39 million in worth.

The set comprises - the royal robe or pall, armill, dalmatic, columbium sindonis, spurs, rings, swords, orbs, sceptres (with a cross or dove) and the crowns. There are more items included in the set for the royal crowning ceremony. The Imperial State Crown, made for King George VI, has quite an extensive selection of gems - 5 rubies, 11 emeralds, 17 sapphires, 273 pearls and a whopping 2,868 diamonds. What makes this particular set of such great value is its 105-carat Koh-i-Noor diamond in the Crown of The Queen Mother. The Koh-i-Noor belonged to our country but was taken away from us during the Imperial rule.
